Hey guys I have an '00 2.5rs. I took off the stock 6 spokes and put on a set of motegi 17x7 ff7's on. I think the offset is +42? Not positive. Anyways if I have some weight in the back like people or stuff in the trunk, when i go around a corner it wil rub pretty bad in the rear. Or if i hit a bad enough bump. The wheels stick out pretty close to in line with the rear quarter panels. Is there any way that i can stop? Any little tips or tricks are welcome. Thank you.

Well I might just sell these wheels. Unless i can find someone that professionally rolls the fenders. Not something i really wanna do myself.

Some wheels with a similar offset were on my RS when I purchased it. I rubbed for a month or two and finally blew a tire on a nasty gravel road. I bought wheels that fit the next day and it was money well spent. Get rid of those wheels.
